Sometimes we use box mixes, but sometimes the homemade version is "necessary".
After making a roux with butter and flour, I add milk and reduce before adding a generous amount of Colby cheese and season with salt to taste. This time I decided to use box tie pasta; school lunch should never to standard.
To round out the lunch I included Apple & Eve- Organic Lemonade, Stretch Island Fruit Co.- Fruit Strip and Nature Box- Mini Belgian Waffles.
The weather is cold and I know this lunch is going to stick to the girls bones and help them get through the day.
